Interim Director, Women’s Studies in Religion Program, Harvard Divinity School

When New Words opened in the 1970s, it became at once a creative and delightful center for the emerging women’s community. It has remained our treasure, and although we mourn the loss of the old space, we look forward to an equally creative and successful metamorphosis. The new undertaking is challenging as well as exciting, but we have the greatest confidence in the talent and commitment of the people who are taking it on. I look forward to the new New Words!
